My first course in my EdD program at the University of South Carolina is complete and I am happy to report that I am starting strong with continuing my post-bac goal of maintaining a 4.0.
This first course was a research seminar in educational technology. The projects and assignments focused on laying a foundation for what educational technology is and helping us begin to choose our capstone dissertation topic. It was an enjoyable course that ended with an annotated bibliography that I hope will serve me well in upcoming research seminars (this summer and this fall).
I have a week off for Spring Break and then the course begins, which is a course on instructional design and assessment. I am very much looking forward to it, although also slightly nervous about continuing to complete course work while on my "actual" Spring Break trip to Paris. The glories of the Internet mean that I won't miss any days of class work though - it will just require creative scheduling.
Off now to go read something just for the fun of it!
